I'm a guitarist, multi-intrumentalist, producer, and songwriter. I love helping to see a work to its full potential and be a part of the collective creative process. My favorite way to work is collaborative and I believe that combining resources and skill sets can have a profound effect on taking a song or project to the next level.
Most of Zach’s musical career has been spent as a sideman, lending guitars and/or keys to artists Jessica Manning, PHO, Andy Cook, Dalmare Yare, Con Davison and Chastity Brown. He’s also shared the stage with national acts such as Jacob Banks, The Weepies, Bad Bad Hats and Blackalicious.
Zach co-founded indie-rock trio Ar.birn with bassist Cooper Doten and drummer Reese Kling, born out of a mutual love of Minneapolis bands such as Halloween Alaska, Happy Apple, and Love-cars. They released an EP of five songs in 2018, much of which was self-recorded in a remote cabin to four-track cassette.
Zach co-founded the tortoise-influenced group Kansas Plates as an outlet for instrumental composition and experimentation. They released Operator in 2019 and perform regularly around the Twin Cities area. They recently worked with engineer and producer Brett Bullion (Bad Bad Hats, Polica) to record their sophomore effort and plan to release new music in 2020.
Jessica Manning asked Zach to produce her latest to-be-released EP, which was recorded entirely at his home in Minneapolis. Shortly after, longtime-collaborator Andy Cook approached Zach to produce four songs for a new EP which were recorded and mixed at Zoo School Studio in St. Croix Falls, MN.
Zach writes and records his own solo music in-between projects and released his first solo EP It's Your World in 2020.
